Default Pinstriping. What do you guys think?

Just wondering how my truck would look without it. I imagined it would look alot like TheStig's truck. I think it would give the truck a little more of a solid look, instead of purple and tan striping. What do you guys think? Keep it or ditch it?

On white, I think "no pinstripes" is a good call. I vote to ditch it.

Ditch it! Will look a lot better without. I would take it off or at least replace it with a black stripe.

Alright so im convinced. Follow up question, how hard will is be to take off 14 year old pinstriping? Will just a heat gun do the trick? Also will the paint be a different shade under the stripe?

Try your autobody paint supply,they sell the stuff to remove it, how ever i've heard that it might mess up the paint, ask before you buy.

ok used the heat gun to take it off but keep in a good distance frome the paint and keep it low then get some adhesive remover from a car paint store. use a terry cloth and spray directly on will do the trick. and the paint might be a slight diffrence but wash will usually do the trick. i know from experience lol
